Egypt's Grand Game looks huge!

I'm also surprised that Pay the Rent has been seen on foreign versions, albeit only two.

Yeah, I was wrong about one of them looking like Super Saver. The one that looks like Now or Then looks odd.

The Mexico '10 version of Grand Game looks more like Now...or Then.

Aside from the wheel (which rotates so the host/model don't have to move to reveal the prices), it also had a rather unique way of displaying the cash won:

In those pictures for Grand Game, one of them kinda looks like "Super Saver" with a digital display in the middle.
Maybe that's why I really like that set...always had a soft spot for Super Saver.
Any closer and Bob gives it away.

Okay, guys, this has already happened twice.  I don't want it happening again.  Brosa will get to each individual pricing game when or if he gets to it.

I'm sorely tempted to issue a three-day ban the next time somebody does this.  Don't make me have to decide whether to follow through.

Certainly an interesting mix amongst the Grand Game sets. Besides Thailand, Indonesia, Egypt and Mexico 99 have the set closest to ours. The France Grand Game set certainly went through several changes overtime, none of them particularly good looking. Mexico 10's looks like some odd hybrid of Super Saver with More or Less's color scheme. Columbia's makes me think of the Plinko sign.

OK, maybe I was right about that one game that looks like Super Saver.

Egypt's Grand Game almost looks fake, with how flat it is.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention.  I've managed to find promo shots of some more games from the Colombian version, including Pay The Rent.   I've also found three refurbished versions of games that I've already posted, which are included in this post:

Pay The Rent (Colombia)


3 Strikes (Spain '93)


3 Strikes (France '15)


Punch-A-Bunch (Spain '93)

Spain's version of Dice Game was actually La Ruleta, using a roulette wheel with numbers 0-9 in play:


If you look closely at the image in the montage, you'll see that this contestant managed to get 3 numbers right with her spins despite the larger range.

Not a lot of variation in Dice Game around the world except for the Spanish roulette wheel. Also in the Italy version, it looks like the second to last digit is a 7, so they might have used the larger 1-9 range too.

Let 'em Roll...I am *loving* the huge dice and ramps in the China & France '09 versions. I hope they use some sort of overhead camera to show the result--that would show a unique view of the stage floor as well as make the result clear.

What are the US dollar equivalents of those amounts in Columbia's Pay the Rent?

The Netherlands Dice Game set is really cool, otherwise not much to write home about in the sets. I wonder why they replaced the dice wheel a roulette wheel in Spain. Unless they have a way to make the wheel not spin more than like 4-5 revolutions at a time it probably increases the time it takes to play the game by a lot, while also making it much harder.

Most of the Let em Roll sets are like our original set, but then you have China and France which have a huge slide and the dice roll onto the floor of the set. That would be something interesting to see on our version maybe for April Fools if they did a giant set theme.

Like previously mentioned, I am also in love with the giant Let 'Em Roll sets for France and China.
